DENHAM SPRINGS - This is the time of year people put up all types of Christmas displays, but one display at a Livingston Parish home is not what some people had in mind. 

Sarah Henderson's light display on Starlite Drive showed a hand flipping the middle finger, before police asked her to take it down. She says she had a disagreement with neighbors, and this was her response. 

People complained about the display, and when police asked her to remove it she did. Some neighbors worried about children seeing what they consider a vulgar gesture.

The ACLU issued a statement on the display, saying Henderson should be allowed to leave the lights up without any threat of penalty because it is her right under the First Amendment.
